Flash Director Teases The Flash And Cyborg Superhero Team-Up
With Wonder Woman set to make her long-awaited debut next year and principal photography on The Justice League nearly wrapped, the DC Extended Universe just keeps moving right along. Next up for Warner Bros. and DC Films is Rick Famuyiwa’s solo Flash film, starring Justice League scene-stealer Ezra Miller as the beloved speedster.
On Monday, the director took to Twitter to reveal that he has completed yet another draft of the script. (Geoff Johns, president of DC Entertainment and co-chief of DC Movies, is also working with Famuyiwa to develop Barry Allen’s solo venture for the big screen.) Standing on top of the script appears to be a Funko Flash toy, as well as one of Cyborg.

Back in August it was reported that Ray Fisher’s Cyborg would appear in The Flash. Either Famuyiwa is trolling us, or this is his way of confirming the news. However, it’s still not known how substantial a role the robotic Justice Leaguer will play in the Flash film.
It makes sense that Warner Bros. and DC would want to give Fisher’s part-human, part-machine superhero ample screen time ahead of his own solo adventure in 2020. Not to mention, given their ages, Barry and Vic seem like the next great superhero bromance. (Sorry, Science Bros.) Under Famuyiwa’s vision, The Flash could be the film that changes people’s perceptions of a DC film.
“I think there’s just an intention to make something extremely fun and something superhuman and something deeply human,” Miller told MTV News of the film. “It’s the thing we’re all trying to do, but I think Rick’s mind and his heart are in an excellent place, and his expertise as a filmmaker, as evidenced by Dope, all come together as very exciting factors to me.”
It’s exciting for us, too.
